Lake District Coast Aquarium

Since first opening May 1997 we've had 23 Years of fish filled fun! With Daily Fish Feeding & Talks we provide great chances to see our fish getting fed whilst learning new & interesting facts from one of our Aquarists. Plus a chance to ask any questions you may have. Your ticket will be valid all day for the date purchased so you can come & go as you please. With over 75 displays & constantly looking for ways to expand and introduce new features to the Aquarium and our surrounding attractions. It's always a great time to visit the Aquarium.

Harbourside Café

Our café is part of the aquarium building but like the gift shop, mini golf and boat pool is accessible to the general public, not just ticket holders. The location is amazing, with views overlooking the harbour and out across the Solway to Scotland on clear days. If the weather allows there are picnic tables and a patio, allowing us to seat 60+ customers at any one time so we can cope with coaches on all but the busiest days. There is a great cup of coffee too, we have lots of regulars dropping in for a cappuccino and a fresh scone! We are a non smoking facility, accessible to wheelchairs, and there are high chairs for infants

Treasure Trove Gifts

The Treasure Trove is more than your average tourist attraction gift shop. Not only do we sell soft toys, books, general toys, jewellery, magnets, postcards & sweets; we also offer homeware, greeting cards, gift wrap & bags and have recently introduced a compreshensive selection of candles , votives, wax melts, & accessories from the Heart & Home range.

14 Hole Crazy Golf

Our 14 hole Mini Golf course is great fun for all the family! Whether for fun or competition we're sure you'll enjoy the challenge! The holes take you on a scenic trail whilst testing your skill and luck. Infants under 3 years old play for free with paying adults. The course takes you outside around our building but you also have great chances to enjoy the view of the Solway whilst waiting for your turn. You'll also be able to peer into the harbour at trawlers heading out & returning from sea.

Type Price
Child (3-16) £2.00
Adult (16+) £3.00

Coastal Bait & Tackle

Our Freezers are generally always stocked full of all the popular frozen fishing bait. As well as baits we have a huge seelction of tackle including rod & reel combos and tons of weights, rigs, and hooks. If you can't find what you need, let us know and we will try our best to source it for you. Shop Open 7 Days/Week 09:00 - 17:00

Adventure Playground & RC Boats

Our Nautical themed playpark is lots of fun. It features a childrens zip wire, Sinking boats, & even a closed off area safe for parents & toddlers. The Adventure Playground is open during the working hours of the aquarium (09:00 - 17:00) & is free for all visitors!
Test your pilot skills on our RC boats by maneuvering your boat around the various obstacles. We normally have six boats active, so you can have a peaceful cruise or race against your family around the pool.
